Steel tycoon Vladimir Lisin took the top spot as his fortune rose to $15.8bn (£10.2bn) from $5.2bn a year ago.
The number of Russian billionaires rose to 62 from 32, while their combined fortune jumped to $297bn from $142bn.

Earlier this year, Russian business magazine Finans published its latest rich list, which had 77 Russian dollar billionaires in it.
At the time, Finans said that the people who had done well were, "people who had sold their businesses or part of them before the crisis reached its acute phase". The Russian economy was hit hard by the global financial crisis in 2009, shrinking by almost 8%.
